Death by Any Other Name

The Sunday Times quotes the Prisons Department spokesman as saying that a new title is being sought to replace that of “hangman” as the negative connotations of the current title of the post is putting off applicants for the vacant spot. I have helpfully made up a list of possible designations for this job; feel free to add to it:

Life Terminations Officer

Permanent Citizenship Revocation Manager

Life Executive Officer, Prisons Department

Director of Lifestyle Suppression

Chief Operations Officer, Executions & Terminations

Terminal Penalties Officer

And my personal favourite: Director of the Division of Ultimate Solutions
